About me

I’m a big sports nut. Anything sports I enjoy. I grew up playing baseball, and I play in an adult baseball league. The Broncos and Rockies are my favorite teams. Other than that, I love to spend time with my family. I have a three-year-old little girl.

I grew up in Littleton, but my grandparents have lived in Lakewood for as long as I can remember, so I grew up in Lakewood as well.

Entry to law enforcement

I never had close ties to law enforcement like others. I grew up playing cops and robbers with my family and brothers. Being a police officer is just something that I found to be interesting at a young age.

I went to Colorado State University, and I spent five years with Clear Creek County’s Sheriff Office. One of the top agencies I wanted to work for was the Lakewood Police Department. It just felt like a good place to me.

Life on the night shift

I’m part of the public information team and the social media team. I’m assigned to nights, and you never know what the shift will hold. We start our watch role call at 9 p.m. where we get our daily assignments. Then they pass on information we need to know about, and we hit the streets right after that. It’s different day to day.

My favorite part about my job is engaging with different people on a daily basis. A lot of the reasons I got into the profession is why I do social media. I like talking to people. I like learning about people. I meet different people, different styles of people, and I’m able to learn about them and kind of learn what they expect from me.
